On a Tuesday episode of Complex’s “Everyday Struggle,” rapper Joe Budden went face-to-face with Lil Yachty and called out the young rapper for saying he’s “happy every day.” Following Budden’s comments, the “Pump It Up” rapper was the butt of jokes on Twitter, leading to a plethora of memes at his expense. 

After Yachty told Budden he was happy all the time, Budden accused him of being “media trained,” saying, “Feelings are fickle. What that means is, they come and they go. Nobody is one thing forever.”

He added, “You would be lying to tell that as a young man in this industry, in this music industry, in the music business, you are happy 24-7.” Budden went on to call the rapper’s statements a lie and said he wasn’t having an honest conversation. Check out some of the best memes making fun of Budden’s reaction below:

As for Lil Yachty, the “1 Night” rapper didn’t get too upset by Budden’s comments and responded to the rapper, saying, “When you come from a college dorm room, with no money, and you ain’t gettin’ no play with no girls, you have no clothes, you have no car and you come to having three or four cars, millions of dollars, half a million dollars on your body just to wear and any kind of clothes you want, any hoes you want, how can you be upset?”

Since he burst on the scene in 2016, Lil Yachty has been the target of a lot of hate from older hip-hop fans. In December, Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex called Yachty a “mumble rapper.” The young artist was also called out by Ebro Darden, who tweeted, “@lilyachty and his team with these high school [expletive] #bars… Ha!,” after the rapper released a new song.

The rapper had also previously been called out by Joe Budden who said, “I don’t think that Yachty is hip-hop.” Budden added, “I don’t think that Yachty’s label [Capitol Records] is hip-hop. When you’re not hip-hop and you’re trying to just troll or exploit, you get things like this album cover.”

The cover Budden was talking about is the artwork for Yachty’s upcoming debut album, “Teenage Emotions.” The cover features the rapper sitting in auditorium surrounded by a group of young people. One girl in the crowd has vitiligo, one boy suffers from albinism and two other boys can be seen kissing. 

Photographer Kenneth Cappello shot the album’s cover and detailed how it came to be. Cappello told XXL, “He mentioned that to me and he was telling me it’d be really important to show the diversity, the inclusion of all these different teens who could come together and form this cover.”

He added, “He’s pretty much the king of teens and he just wanted to show no matter who you are, you have to embrace who you are and you have to be be proud and be yourself, and I think that’s what we captured with this cover.”
